About Greg

Hello!

My name is Greg, and I am in my 4th year in the neuroscience PhD program at UVM. I first began tutoring my senior year in college as part of TA-ing for three different classes and continued tutoring after college for two years before beginning graduate school. In graduate school, I teach lab sections for introductory neuroscience classes, lead discussion sections, and mentor undergraduates in their independent research. Along the way I have tutored in high school math and biology since 2012. Through the years of research, tutoring, and mentoring, the personal relationships I have formed have been the most rewarding parts of my job.

My goal as a tutor is to have my students have a complete and generalizable knowledge of the material we cover. Thus, if we are working on algebra then I would expect my student's knowledge to be able to be applied to physics or chemistry easily, and with confidence, rather than only feeling comfortable with work they have already seen. This takes the form of unseen practice problems in each session that build upon past material but are within completely novel contexts that should challenge the student and give real feedback as to the actual skills they have gained while working with me. This is in opposition to direct memorization of a process. Flexibility is key to being able to succeed in high level examinations! I have a lot invested in my skills as a teacher, as such, an open exchange of feedback is really necessary for both of us to be satisfied with my services. Let me know if I'm helping you to the highest degree possible!

I would love to help you reach your goals in math and science so please contact me if I can be of service!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam.

Greg helped my 9th grade son with Geometry. In just one session he was able to build his confidence and turn on a lightbulb in his thought process about solving problems. We feel so fortunate to have connected with him. A perfect fit for my son. Looking forward to regular sessions with Greg!!
